Round 4 of Midweek Pennant had both Division 1 and 2 playing at home. It was a perfect bowls day for all out on the green and made for thrifty bowl speed. For Division 1 the game was tight all the way through to the end with final results reading Portland RSLM 61 to Hamilton 52.

Jan Woolley and her team were neck and neck throughout the entire game. It was consistency over the last five ends that got them through. Scores on this rink were 18 to 16 our way. Meanwhile Leonie Buchanan’s cohort broke away early but their lead was compromised mid game by a multiple from the opposition. However they soon got this back and after the break they went onto consolidate their lead in a tight match winning 23 to 20. June Leahy and team also took on an early lead before faltering on a score of six for a few ends, but finally drawing level at the break. Afterward the tight game continued with not much in it until June steered her team gaining momentum from the 17th end onwards. Final results on this rink were 20 to 16.

Division 2 were put to the test on the day with a strong Macarthur. Despite the scores being well down at the break, Pearl Kitt and her team were able to come back and draw level near the final ends of their game. However they were not able to sustain their progress and finally went down 16 to 21. Jude Fasoli’s rink had a loss of 11 to 28.

Teams for next week’s Midweek Pennant Round 5 see Portland RSLM having a bye, whilst Division 2 will be host to Portland:

The side for Division 2 is as follows:
